Following my little rant about Sonic Unleashed yesterday, my wife chose to have her say as well; she’s not pleased, either, and is a little less kind towards our blue friend than I. Read if you wish, and be warned that there’s a smidge of language, but I wanted to point out this part:
I guess I was taken in by the infamous Sonic Cycle, which is interesting because I thought I was aware of the writing on the wall after Sonic Adventure 2. This is the first time in ages I’ve given the Blue Streak a moment to redeem himself in my eyes.
Sure enough, Sonic ran in and only had time to belt out “HEY, WATCH THI–” before he tripped, hit the ground at 300 MPH and exploded.
You’ve got to admit, that’s a funny visual.
